    I worked at BASF full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and comparable pay. Good pit stop to quickly learn and stepping stone to next opportunity. A good place for career advancement ONLY if you’re part of the club.

    Cons

    They communicate a culture of growth and work life balance. The work life balance is your owned by you as an employee and is achievable. Otherwise, this is a place where careers go to die a slow and agonizing death. Everyone has left each and every division to find growth and opportunities to learn. Company is filled with a cancerous culture of politics and bad treatment of employees in every level.

    I have been working at BASF full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are great. Also BASF caters to the prevailing winds of political correctness.

    Cons

    Senior management is under extreme pressure to return unrealistic ROI each year and often agree to bad organizational decisions in order to keep moving to other positions before the results of the bad decisions are realized.

    Pros

    Steady advancement if qualified. See something say something. Average is not good enough to advance. Best benefits in our area, up to 10 days bereavement. Eight paid weeks of parental leave for moms and dads in addition to six to eight weeks of paid maternity leave for new moms.

    Cons

    Always changing new things happening, constant innovation if you cannot change and adapt you will be left behind.

    Benefits are very good: 3 week vacation, great 401k with match, onsite gym and various employee discounts.

    Pros

    easy work. just follow your instruction and order from the boss. Most of people are nice.

    Cons

    advancement is very short. It is about who you know, not what you know. it is better to get experience and move on to other company. They don't want you think or over think. just do you job. put in your hours and get pay and get out... There are many dangerous chemicals in the building.
